Diane,
Several of us have been carefully monitoring Jerry to make sure he's gonna' be OK again. He's been a little crabby, but our resident psychologist assures us that he will be back to dispensing those awful puns again very soon. The minute the puns reappear, you can breathe a sigh of relief.

Good! Cause I seriously think JERRY has been sniffing too much "SNOW" grin or his wife has a pillow over his head too tight? grin
I've been around for about 2 weeks now, & he just noticed me now? I'm worried about you Jerry, very worried! wink

That's what happened. I found it on the beach and it was free, what can I say?

I know, I've been a bit testy and short for a while. Sorry about that. I was telling my older sister that many things are/have been, going on. First my Osteoarthritis was getting to the point where I couldn't do much anymore. Anything that required a lot of work like grand damper work, I couldn't do it. My neck wouldn't look up very well and it hurt like mad when I tried.

Then, I discovered that I had a hernia. 2 years ago, in the fall, I had that repaired.

Not to long after about a month, I think, I fell damaging my right knee meniscus. I wound up getting that repaired the following year. 8 months ago, I started Prolotherapy for my arthritis which does work by the way. It heals it. I don't hurt nearly as much today, as I did 10 months back. Prolotherapy is great but, it hurts like heck when you're getting the shots. I was getting 150-170 shots a month. I skipped a couple of months due to illness and another surgery.

Every time I get these shots, after one week passes I start getting really, really tired. That last for about the next week or longer.

I had my Gallbladder removed on January 10th however, for a year or two prior to that, I had terrible pain and so, we figure it was from that looking back at it now. So, that's gone but now the post surgery pains which are not pleasent at all and being on pain killers after 7 & 8 PM does play with ones mind a bit.

So, all in all, I'm on the upswing. I was in the meantime however, slowly reaching the breaking point because I couldn't do much. It hurt a lot to do much.

Today, I tuned 3 pianos. Yesterday I tuned 4 pianos but today I paid for it being more sore again. That, my dear friends, is what has been affecting my mood.

3 sugeries in the past 3 years and then Prolotherapy which runs you down but it does work....

As I said, I'm on the upswing but I'm still sore...

I'll come back around one of these days..... smile

Christian One liners. I thought some of them were pretty cute.

Don't let your worries get the best of you; Remember,
Moses started out as a basket case.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
Some people are kind, polite, and sweet-spirited
Until you try to sit in their pews.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
Many folks want to serve God,
But only as advisers.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
It is easier to preach ten sermons
Than it is to live one.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
The good Lord didn't create anything without a purpose,
But mosquitoes come close.

*+*+*+*+*++*+*+*+*
When you get to your wit's end,
You'll find God lives there.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
People are funny; they want the front of the bus,
Middle of the road,
And back of the church.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
Opportunity may knock once,
But temptation bangs on the front door forever.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
Quit griping about your church;
If it was perfect, you couldn't belong.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
If a church wants a better pastor,
It only needs to pray for the one it has.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
We're called to be witnesses, not lawyers or Judges.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
God Himself doesn't propose to judge a man until
he is dead. So why should you?

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
Some minds are like concrete
Thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.


*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
Peace starts with a smile.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
I don't know why some people change churches;
What difference does it make which one you stay home from?

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
Be ye fishers of men. You catch 'em - He'll clean 'em.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
Stop, Drop, and Roll won't work in heck.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
Don't put a question mark where God put a period.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
Don't wait for 6 strong men to take you to church.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
Forbidden fruits create many jams.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
God grades on the cross, not the curve.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
God loves everyone,
But probably prefers 'fruits of the spirit' over 'religious nuts!'

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage..

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
He who angers you, controls you!

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
If God is your Co-pilot, swap seats!

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
Prayer:
Don't give God instructions, just report for duty!

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
The task ahead of us is never as
great as the Power behind us.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
The Will of God never takes you to where the
Grace of God will not protect you.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
We don't change the message,
The message changes us.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
You can tell how big a person is
By what it takes to discourage him/her.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
The best mathematical equation I have ever seen:
1 cross + 3 nails = 4 given.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
If this blessed you in a profound way today,
Share it with a few friends to bless them!
I bet someone else will LOVE it too.
There is no greater treasure than a good friend!


Have a wonderful day!!!!!.

1. If you want to make money as a comedian you gotta have the cents of humor.

2. What do you call a marketplace that sells weird stuff? A bizarre bazaar!

3. Being struck by lightning is a really shocking experience!

4. The Hungary Wales Seattled down and Finnished their lunch, Hamburg-ers with Chiles.

5. A bicycle cannot stand on its own because it is two-tired.

6. “What’s purple and 5000 miles long?” “Ooh! I know! The Grape Wall of China!”

7. How do celebrities stay cool? They have many fans!

8. Two fish are in a tank. One says to the other, “Uhm… how do you drive this thing?”

9. The reason he didn’t become a juggler was… he hadn’t got the balls to do it!
